Initial reflections on your Artwork
The dark blue sky in the Eccles Cross oil painting evokes a sense of mystery and intrigue, while the luminous yellow reflections from the streetlights create an atmospheric feeling of magic and wonder. The cityscape at night is brought to life by the vibrant colours, instilling a feeling of peace and solitude in the observer. The painting is captivating, inviting the viewer to explore the scene further and uncover its secrets.
It reminds us of...
John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893): Grimshaw's paintings often featured night scenes lit by the moon and streetlights, with a focus on the atmospheric elements of the landscape. His dark blues and yellows create a harmonious colour palette similar to the painting described.
Claude Monet (1840-1926): Monet's series of paintings of the Rouen Cathedral have a similar night landscape style, with dark blues and yellows creating a harmonious colour palette. The works focus on the atmosphere of the night scene, and the luminous reflections of the streetlights.
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890): Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night has a similar focus on the night and its atmosphere, as well as its colour harmony of blues and yellows. His painting also features luminous yellow reflections from the night sky.
Maximilien Luce (1858-1941): Luce's night scenes often featured a combination of dark blues and yellows, creating a sense of harmony in the painting. His works also focus on atmospheric elements of the night landscape, and many feature luminous yellow reflections.
Features which are particularly good
This oil painting of a cityscape at night has an impressive range of colour harmony, with an interesting contrast between vibrant hues of blue and orange. The artist has used a dynamic range of colours to capture the vibrancy of the night sky, making this painting particularly impressive. The interplay between the colours creates a beautiful effect, allowing the viewer to become lost in the enchanting cityscape.
Areas for improvement
1. Consider adding a vanishing point in the distance to create a sense of depth in the painting.
2. To further enhance the sense of perspective, vary the colour and size of the buildings to create a sense of distance.
3. Pay attention to the placement of the street and car lights in order to create a more believable
Believe it or not this is all generated by AI. Interesting how a computer can give feedback on an artwork. I am not adverse to criticism, yet I am not sure that I agree with the suggested areas of improvement though.
There is a vanishing point, the buildings do get smaller and the colour does get lighter to enhance the perspective. There are no car headlights and I do use street lighting.
Message from our human judge:
This is a fantastic painting. I love your use of reflections. It contributes to the atmosphere of the painting. Thank you for sharing it with us!
An interesting look at the possible future of feedback and possible judging of art competitions.
Whilst I don't enter competitions always expecting to win, it's brilliant that this one provides feedback, but not sure the computer is that helpful in inspiring my future work. In my opinion art should encourage an emotional response rather than clinical one which the AI does well. The human message, whilst positive, doesn't offer a critique. i would have liked to have found our what he or she thought I could do to improve it.
